This is one of those dishes that I can eat any time. There is so much flavour in the marinade, it delivers every time. It reminds me of California, I think because I probably ate something like this there though I have no specific memory of it.
I know this is probably an Americanised version of Thai food, but nonetheless, I crave these flavours sometimes. With fresh herbs, the heat from chilli and garlic and a really well cooked steak, it is hard to beat and you will find your eaters will probably agree with me.
We sometimes add ruby grapefruit to this salad, but they are not always available year round...just don't forget to try that when you next see a ruby grapefruit at the market! I hope you enjoy.
